Understanding the Dangers of Invokana
As mentioned above, Invokana is a drug used to treat type 2 diabetes. Its
only ingredient is canagliflozin. It decreases glucose levels in the blood
by increasing the amount of glucose lost in the urine, and it prevents
glucose from being reabsorbed into the bloodstream once it passes through
the kidneys. Some symptoms of Invokana result in mild discomfort. These
include rashes, dizziness, and yeast infections. However, some side effects
are more serious, and may even be fatal.
Invokana causes a variety of severe side effects, such as:
- Bone fractures
- Kidney damage
Invokana has also been linked to toe, foot, and leg amputations. A series
of clinical studies found that using Invokana may double your risk of
amputation. These findings prompted the FDA to issue a black box warning
about this drug in May, 2017. Manufacturers are required to provide clear
warning of the risk of amputation and other side effects. Those with a
history of foot ulcers, neuropathy, peripheral vascular disease, and previous
amputations may be at high risk of serious side effects.
